Handmade Italian wheels with hubs you'll hear a mile off

Damil DR-18c All Road 38 rim brake wheels
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Quick pick-up hubs with stiff rims that provide an aero edge without a hefty weight penalty. Unfortunately not tubeless ready, which loses them a few marks, but otherwise a great choice (as long as you like a noisy hub).
